About Margene Walz

Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and built on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)

Margene Walz purchased this house in 2014

Why Margene Walz chose Texas

Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.

What makes this house unique

The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. The deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house has private doors from the Master bedroom and Guest bedroom. Each has its own romantic personal space. But the most impressive thing about this home is the spectacular beach front view. The family area under the house includes an enclosed shower, bar with enclosed refrigerator and 2 built-in picnic tables. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This trip had exactly what we needed: peaceful sounds of surf, exquisite sunrise/sunset views, fantastic deck, comfortable and spacious accommodation. We were able to get away from to-do's and truly relax -- and our dog had a wonderful time, too. Being there during the super moon was an added bonus. The hardest part was leaving.

Perfect location for beach lovers!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend with my family at this wonderful beach home. The porch was perfect for wave watching and morning coffee.We loved the big comfy chairs!! You couldn't ask for a better view. I loved the kitchen with everything we needed to cook and a beautiful view of the ocean from the kitchen window.

The beds are comfy, rooms have lots of space to spread out and it's a great location. The owner was helpful and available to answer my questions. I would recommend this comfy, clean beach home to my family and friends. We will be back!!

Had a great return stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house back in March & stayed for a week with our grandkids. We liked it enough to come back for a few days in November. Since it was during the week, we had the beach all to ourselves. We had a very quiet, relaxing stay. The house is very comfortably furnished, there are plenty of dishes & cookware, as well as all the supplies we needed. The deck is big & is partly covered. The big wooden deck chairs are my favorite place to relax. There is a bit of sway to the house, which Margene explains in her email, but if it is extra windy, you do feel it. We've enjoyed both our visits to this house, and hope to return again.

Owner's Response: Thank you wonderful guest for the kind review. I love hearing from repeat customers. Regarding the house movement..... Because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Ike the State of Texas imposed new height regulations on homes built along the coast of Bolivar Peninsula, especially those built on the beach front. These new safety regulations have caused the homes to be more flexible. Something needed to combat wind forces if a hurricane passes through. My house is 16' above the ground. Therefore you will experience some motion inside the house. The view and close proximity of the beach make it all worthwhile!

Repeat visitor

  • 5 of 5

This was our second fall visit to Pelican Bay and again we enjoyed it a lot. We really felt like we were returning home. The view from the spacious, comfortable deck is gorgeous and I spent most of my time there relaxing and watching the waves and the birds. Our dog also loved it and the gate at the top of the stairs made it safe for him to be out there alone. The walk to the beach is short and easy and the sunrises are beautiful. We really appreciated all the little things that are done right at this property : hand soap provided for all the sinks; a cabinet full of dishes and loads of silverware; all appliances in working order; electrical outlets where they are needed. We enjoyed using the tv/dvr so we could take advantage of outdoor activities and still watch our favorite shows. We enjoyed eating out at the local restaurants, but if you come in the fall be sure to check on hours and days of operation.

Owner's Response: Just want to thank you for the wonderful review. I love all my repeat guests! I would like to reiterate my guest's comment about restaurant schedules during the fall season. When you arrive at the house there is a flip chart with local restaurant phone numbers. Make sure you call your chosen eatery before you make the trip to the facility. But you will always find several restaurants open for your enjoyment.
